** Growing list – Open Call still open check responses **
The exhibition and series of events whose title is taken from the words of Leah, the bride in the Dybbuk by Sh. An-sky, engages with urgent questions regarding the Prevention of Infiltration Law passed by Israel’s Parliament in November 2017, and its grave implications for asylum seekers in Israel.
The exhibition and the event series attempt to raise questions, further discussion and promote action in line with our civic stand that offering refuge to asylum seekers whose lives are in danger is a basic humanitarian principle.
The events are organized in collaboration with Ronit Rozenthal, Tamar Verete-Zehavi and Silvia Cabib
